The 2023 Yankees Season: The 3/5th Mark

By James Vlietstra

July 24th, 2023



The recently completed 3/5th of the Yankees season has got to be one of their worst in recent memory. Their record was 13-20 and dropped them to last in the AL East.

Aaron Judge was injured during the entire segment and the offense completely collapsed. Gleyber Torres is probably the only player who can say that he actually produced.

Anthony Rizzo and DJ LeMahieu were especially bad. Recent injuries to Josh Donaldson and Jose Trevino forced the team to call up better players from the minors.

On the pitching end, Cole has consistently been one of the league’s best and started the All-Star game.

Clarke Schmidt has emerged as one of the better pitchers in the league and Domingo German joined the immortals with his Perfect Game that immediately ranks in the top 20 Yankees moments.

A Wrap-Up 3/5th of the Way Through:

The Draft and All Star break gave us enough of a distraction from what was going on on the field. However, the dog days of August are approaching and this team, and as constructed, it doesn't look to be very fun.

I personally would like to see the team be aggressive sellers at the trade deadline and restock the farm system. Afterwards, promote the likes of Everson Pereira, Austin Wells, Edgar Barclay, Yoendrys Gomez, Danny Watson, and Andres Chaparro and see what you have.

I actually would expect that the influx of youth would improve the on field performance and if Judge returned healthy, their spot in the standings may improve. Being that they aren’t far behind in the playoff race, they could still make a run, but with a team more enjoyable to watch and with a focus on the future in mind.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
